HISTORY 

The Charter of Millsaps College, which was granted Feb- 
ruary 21, 1890, reads as follows: 

AN ACT to incorporate Millsaps College. 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of 
Mississippi, That Thomas J. Wheat, Samuel M. Thames, Thomas 
J. Newell and Rufus M. Standifer, of the North Mississippi Con- 
ference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and Garvin 
D. Shands, David L. Sweatman, James B. Streater, and John 
Ti'ice, lay members of said church within bounds of said Con- 
ference, and Thomas L. Mellen, Warren C. Black, Alexander 
F. Watkins and Charles G. Andrews, members of the Missis- 
sippi Conference of said church, and Marion M. Evans, Luther 
Sexton, William L. Nugent, and Reuben W. Millsaps, of Jack- 
son, lay members of said church, within the bounds of said 
Mississippi Conference, and Bishop Charles B. Galloway, be 
and they are hereby constituted a body corporate and politic 
by and under the name and style of Millsaps College, and by 
that name they and their successors may sue and be sued, plead 
and be impleaded, contract and be contracted with, and have a 
common seal and break the same at pleasure, and may accept 
donations of real and personal property for the benefit of the 
College hereafter to be established by them, and contributions 
of money or negotiable securities of every kind in aid of the 
endowment of such College; and may confer degrees and give 
certificates of scholarship and make by-laws for the govern- 
ment of said College and its affairs, as well as for their govern- 
ment, and do and perform all other acts for the benefit of said 
institution and the promotion of its welfare that are not re- 
pugnant to the Constitution and laws of this State and of the 
United States, subject however, to the approval of the said 
Conferences. 

Sec. 2. As soon as convenient after the passage of this 
Act, the persons named in the first section thereof shall meet 
in the City of Jackson, in this State, and organize by accept- 
ance of the charter and the election of Bishop Charles B. Gallo- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 17 

way as their permanent President, and of such other persons 
as they may determine to fill the offices of Vice-President, Sec- 
retary and Treasurer, and shall prescribe the duties, powers 
and terms of office of all said officers, except as to the term 
of their said President, who shall hold office during life or 
good behavior, or so long as he may be physically able to dis- 
charge his duties. 

They shall also select by lot from the lay and clerical trus- 
tees from each of said Conferences one-half, who shall be 
trustees of said College for three years and until their succes- 
sors are elected, and the other half not so selected shall re- 
main in office for the term of six years and until their succes- 
sors are chosen, as hereinafter mentioned. Upon the death 
resignation or removal of said Galloway, or his permanent phy- 
sical disability to discharge the duties of his office, the said 
Trustees may elect their President and prescribe his duties, 
powers and term of office. 

Sec. 3. That the said Trustees shall, before the meeting 
of said Conference next before the expiration of the term of 
office of any of their number, notify the secretary of said Con- 
ferences thereof, and the vacancies shall be filled by said Con- 
ferences in such a way and at such time as they may determ- 
ine, and the persons so selected shall succeed to the office, 
place, jurisdiction, and powers of the Trustees whose terms of 
office have expired. And the said corporation and the College 
established by it shall be subject to the visitorial powers of 
said Conferences at all times, and the said College, its proper- 
ty and effects shall be the property of, said Church under the 
special patronage of said Conferences. 

Sec. 4. That the said Trustees, when organized as herein- 
before directed, shall be known by the corporate name set out 
in the first section of this Act, and all money, promissory notes 
and evidence of debt heretofore collected under the direction of 
said Conferences for said College shall be turned over to and 
receipted for by them in their said corporate name, and the 
payee of all such notes and evidences of debt shall endorse and 



18 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

assign the same to the corporation herein provided for, which 
shall thereafter be vested with the full legal title thereto, and 
authorized to sue for and collect the same. 

The said corporation shall have the power to select any ap- 
propriate town, city, or other place in this State at which to 
establish this College, and to purchase grounds not to exceed 
one hundred acres as a building site and campus therefor, and 
erect thereon such buildings, dormitories, and halls as they may 
think expedient and proper to subserve the purposes of their 
organization and the best interest of said institution, and they 
may invite propositions from any city or town or individual 
in the State for such grounds, and may accept donations or 
grants of land for the site of said institution. 

Sec. 5. That the land or grounds not to exceed one hun- 
dred acres used by the corporation as a site and a campus for 
said College, and the buildings, dormitories and halls thereon 
ei'ected, and the endoM'ment fund contributed to said College 
shall be exempt from all State, County and Municipal taxation 
so long as the said College shall be kept open and maintained 
for the purpose contemplated by this Act, and no longer. 

Sec. 6. That the cost of education shall, as far as practi- 
cable, be reduced by said corporation to the lowest point con- 
sistent with the efficient operation of said College, and to this 
end reports shall be made to the said Conferences from year to 
year, and their advice in that behalf taken, and every reasonable 
effort shall be made to bring a collegiate education within the 
reach and ability of the poorer classes of the State. 

Sec. 7. That this Act take effect and be in force from and 
after its passage. 

The College has its origin in the general policy of the 
Methodist Church to maintain institutions under its own con- 
trol for higher learning in the Arts and Sciences. 

At the annual session of the Mississippi Conference in the 
City of Vicksburg, on December 7, in the year 1888, the follow- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 19 

ing resolutions were adopted by a large majority of the Con- 
ference : 

"Resolved, 1. That a college for males under the 
auspices and control of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
South, ought to be established at some central and ac- 
cessible point in the State of Mississippi. 

"2. That a committee of three laymen and three 
preachers be appointed to confer with a like committee 
to be appointed by the North Mississippi Conference to 
formulate plans and to receive offers of donations of 
lands, buildings, or money for that purpose, and re- 
port to the next session of this Conference." 

In accordance with this action, the President of the Con- 
ference, Bishop R. K. Hargrove, appointed the following com- 
mittee: Rev. T. L. Mellen, Rev. W. C. Black, Rev. A. F. Wat- 
kins, Major R. W. Millsaps, Col. W. L. Nugent and Dr. Luther 
Sexton. 

On December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi Conference 
met at Starkville, Mississippi, Bishop C. B. Galloway presid- 
ing. The Rev. T. L. Mellen appeared and reported the action 
taken by the Mississippi Conference. The following tran- 
script from the North Mississippi Conference Journal gives 
the response made by that body: 

"Resolved, 1. That a College for the education of 
boys and young men should be established in the State 
of Mississippi* under the auspices of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South. 

"That a committee of three laymen and three min- 
isters be apopinted to confer with a like committee 
already appointed by the Mississippi Conference." 

The following committee was accordingly appointed: Rev. 
J. J. Wheat, Rev. S. M. Thames, Rev. T. J. Newell, Hon. G. D. 
Shands, Capt. D. L. Sweatman, and Mr. J. B. Streater. 



20 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

To the action of these Conferences we may trace the direct 
origin of the College. 

The joint commissions constituted by the action summariz- 
ed above met in the City of Jackson in January, 1889. The 
Rev. Dr. J. J. Wheat was called to the chair. In stating the 
purpose of the meeting he made a stirring appeal in behalf of 
the proposition to establish a Methodist College in Mississippi 
for the education of young men. In response to this earnest 
appeal Major R. W. Millsaps, a member of the commission, pro- 
posed to give $50,000 to endow the institution, provided the 
Methodists of Mississippi would give a sum equal to this 
amount for said purpose. This proposition was enthusiastical- 
ly approved, and after a plan of procedure was adopted, Bishop 
Charles B. Galloway was invited to conduct a campaign in the 
interest of the proposed endowment fund. 



Under the direction of this distinguished leader, the most 
gratifying progress was reported from time to time. The report 
submitted to the Conferences by the committee in December, 
1889, refers to the movement in the following language: 



"The canvass, on account of the numerous neces- 
sitated absences of Bishop Galloway from the State 
could not be continuously carried on, but even the par- 
tial canvass made, embracing not more than one-fifth of 
our territory, resulted in the most gratifying and en- 
couraging success. The interest awakened in the eur 
terprise has extended beyond the limits of our own 
Church, and is felt by every denomination of Christians, 
and by every section of the State. It is safe to say that 
no effort of Methodism has ever kindled such enthus- 
iasm in our State or evoked such liberal offerings to the 
Lord. The fact has been demonstrated that the 
Church is profoundly convinced that the College is 
an absolute necessity." 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 21 

The report continues: 

"So high is the appreciation of the value of the 
proposed institution, that numerous towns in the 
State have entered into earnest competition to secure 
the location of the college within the limits of their 
respective borders, offering from $10,000 to $36,000, 
and from twenty to eighty acres of land." 

In December, 1889, the Rev. A. F. Watkins, a member oi 
the Mississippi Confei-enee was appointed a special agent to 
co-operate with Bishop Galloway in all matters pertaining to 
the endowment of the proposed College. As the work of rais- 
ing the sum designated in the original proposition progressed, 
and $25,000 had been collected. Major Millsaps in the year 1890 
paid $25,000 into the College treasury. 

In December, 1892, the Rev. J. VV. Chambers was appoint- 
ed agent for the College, and on December 30, 1893, he report- 
ed that the full amount had been collected to meet the terms 
of Major Millsaps' proposition, and thereupon $25,000 was im- 
mediately paid by Major Millsaps to the Executive Committee 
and the following resolution was adopted: 

"Resolved, That the Executive Committee return 
our most heartfelt thanks to Major R. W. Millsaps for 
his second gift of $25,000, this day turned over to us. 
For his princely liberality, and unfailing interest in 
the great enterprise so happily and successfully inau- 
gurated, the Church and State owe him a large debt 
of gratitude." 

The Conference having provided for a Board of Trustees, 
the joint commission dissolved in January, 1890. This Board 
to which was referred the matter of organizing the College, 
was composed of the following: 

BISHOP CHARLES B. GALLOWAY, President 

REV. W. C. BLACK, D. D. REV. S. M. THAMES 

REV. T. L. MELLEN REV. T. J. NEWELL 



22 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

REV. A. F. WATKINS REV. C. G. ANDREWS, D. D. 

REV. R. M. STANDIFER HON. G. D. SHANDS 

MAJ. R. W. MILLSAPS CAPT. D. L. SWEATMAN 

COL. W. L. NUGENT MR. J. B. STREATER 

DR. LUTHER SEXTON MR. JOHN TRICE 

HON. M. M. EVANS REV. J. J. WHEAT, D. D. 

After the Board organized under the charter, the question 
of locating the College was considered with great care. The 
Board met repeatedly to consider the offers made by different 
towns, and finally on May, 20, 1891, while in session in Winona, 
Mississippi, decided to locate the College in Jackson, the capi- 
tal of the State. The citizens of Jackson contributed $21,000 
for grounds and buildings, and to this sum Major Millsaps add- 
ed $15,000. Plans for a commodious main building were im- 
mediately procured, grounds were purchased, and in a com- 
paratively short time buildings were in process of erection. 

The College opened its doors for the reception of students 
in 1892 with Rev. W. B. Murrah as President, and three profes- 
sors in the College. A Preparatory School was opened at the 
same time with one Master. From time to time its facilities 
have been enlarged and additional departments created, until 
it now has, in addition to its President, seventeen professors in 
thirteen departments. 

The Presidents of the College have been Rev. W. B. Mur- 
rah, later Bishop Murrah (1892-1910), Professor D. C. Hull 
(1910-1912), and Rev. A. F. Watkins, D. D., (1912-1923), and 
D. M. Key, Ph.D., (1924—). 

The unusual facilities for conducting a Law School in Jack- 
son led to the establishment in 1896, of a Law School. Hon. 
Edward Mayes, ex-Chancellor of the University of Mississippi, 
and for more than fourteen years a professor of law in that 
institution, took active control of the new school. In 1918 it 
was discontinued. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 23 

In 1911 the Academy was formally separated from the Col- 
lege. It was made a distinct institution with the official title 
of the Millsaps Academy. In 1922 it was discontinued. 

The facilities of the College were enlarged in 1895-1896 by 
the generosity of Major Millsaps, who gave Webster Science 
Hall. In 1901 Mr. Dan A. James, of Yazoo City, built an ob- 
servatory for the College, in memory of his father, Mr. Peter 
James, and of his brother Mr. Samuel James, and furnished 
it with a fine telescope. Millsaps College can thus offer un- 
usual advantages in astronomy. In 1902, to supply the in- 
creasing demand for better dormitory and dining hall facili- 
ties. Major Millsaps gave the College the property formerly 
known as Jackson College. This enabled the College to fill 
the demands made on it at that time. In addition to this gift 
Major Millsaps gave fifty acres of land immediately adjoin- 
ing our campus. Ample provision is thus made for the future 
expansion of the College, 

In 1906 the General Education Board offered to donate, 
from the funds provided by John D. Rockefeller for Higher 
Education, $25,000, provided an additional sum of $75,000 
should be collected from other sources, for the permanent en- 
dowment of the College. Rev. T. W. Lewis, of the North 
Mississippi Conference was made financial agent of the Col- 
lege to collect this sum. In 1910 $32,279.10 had been collected 
for this purpose. Mr. I. , C. Enochs, a generous citizen of 
Jackson, gave an additional $5,000. Major Millsaps, with char- 
acteristic generosity, contributed the remaining $37,720.90. 
Thus the endowment of the College was increased by $100,000. 

In 1913 Major Millsaps gave to the College property on 
Capitol Street, Jackaon, valued at $150,000. This is the larg- 
est single gift to the College. 

The dormitory of the Preparatoi^ School was destroyed 
by fire in 1913, but was promptly rebuilt and made more val- 
uable by alterations which also improved greatly the appear- 
ance of the structure. A more disastrous fire destroyed the 
main building in 1914. But within a few months the old struc- 



24 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

tuie had been replaced by a far more commodious and impos- 
\ng administration building, costing $60,000. 

At the decease of Major R. W. Millsaps in 1916, it was found 
that he had left for the endowment of the College life insur- 
ance to the amount of $88,000. This final benefaction fitting- 
ly closed the long list of his gifts to the College. 

The following- statements of the resources of the College, 
while not inclusive of all sources of its revenue, gives some 
idea of the solidity of its foundation, and also furnishes a guar- 
anty of its perpetuity: 

Productive endowment, including revenue pro- 
ducing property $ 714,955.00 

Unproductive endowment (land) 100,000.00 

Value of Library 15,000.00 

Buildings and grounds 410,373.00 

Value of Chemical, Physical and Biological 

apparatus 15,000.00 

Furniture and fixtures 15,000.00 



Total $1,270,328.00 

Since the foundation of the old library had so given way 
as to make the building unsafe, the Carnegie Library Board 
agreed in 1923 to rebuild the Library on a new site, and to pro- 
vide a larger one more nearly adequate to the needs of the col- 
lege, which had grown greatly since the original Library was 
built. So a new Library costing $60,000.00 became available 
in 1925-1926. 

One of the purposes which the College keeps constantly in 
view is indicated by the following section of the charter: 

"The cost of education shall, as far as practicable, 
he reduced to the lowest point consistent with the ef- 
ficient operation of said College, and every reasonable 
effort shall be made to bring collegiate education with- 
in the reach of the poorer classes of the State." 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 2S 

With a productive endowment of over $700,000, and build- 
ings and grounds worth $400,000, it rests on a foundation which 
assures its perpetuity. It has the support of a great religious 
denomination, yet it is not sectarian in its policy. It numbers 
among its patrons representatives of all the Christian churches. 

During the Christian Education Campaign of 1921 Mr. W. 
S. F. Tatum, a generous layman of Hattiesburg, donated 
$100,000 to the College for the establishment of the Depart- 
ment of Religious Education. The Board of Trustees at their 
next annual meeting acepted the gift, giving the department 
the name of the generous donor. The department was organ- 
ized at the opening of the session of 1921-'22, with Professor 
C. A. Bowen in charge. Provision was made in the deed of 
gifts for the employment of an Associate Professor, and Mill- 
saps College now has two professors in this department. The 
work of this department has grown in scope and effectiveness 
until it is now recognized as doing a leading work in the Meth- 
odist Church in this field. 

Since 1912 Millsaps College has been a member of the As- 
sociation of Colleges and Secondary Schools of the Southern 
States, a distinction enjoyed by only three other institutions in 
this State. An impartial committee of the Association made 
exhaustive inquiry into the financial resources of the institu- 
tion, its courses, the training of its instructors, and the char- 
acter of its work, and unanimously recommended it for mem- 
bership. This inquiry extended over a year, and no conditions 
whatever were imposed for the election of the College, since 
it had been of the first rank for some years. Its degrees are 
recognized by all institutions of learning as among the best in 
the land.

MILLSAPS COTl.T?fT]<? 39 

GENERAL INFORMATION 

Pvlillsaps College is named in honor of Major R. W. Millsaps, 
whose munificent gifts have made the existence of the institu- 
tion possible. The College is the property of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South and v/as organized by the concurrent 
action of the Mississippi and North Mississippi Conferences. 
It is not sectarian, however, but numbers among its patrons 
members of all the Christian denominations. 

LOCATION. 

Jackson, the capital of the State, and the seat of the Col- 
lege, is easily accessible by five lines of railv/ay. Thirty pas- 
senger trains arrive and depart daily. The College is located 
in the northern part of the city on a commanding elevation, 
with perfect drainage, and in a beautiful campus of one hun- 
dred or more acres. A healthier spot it would be difficult to 
find within the limits of the State. Jackson is a city of 40,000 
inhabitants, with handsome churches and public buildings, and 
is noted for the refinement and intelligence of its people. Its 
literary, social and religious advantages are superior. 

THE JAMES OBSERVATORY. 

Millsaps College is prepared to offer excellent advantages 
in the study of astronomy. The late Mr. Dan A. James, of 
Yazoo City, Mississippi, built an observatory for the College 
in memory of his father, Mr. Peter James, and of his brother, 
Mr. Samuel James. He also furnished the observatory with a 
fine telescope. The observatory building and equipment has 
been renovated, and is in excellent order. The class of 1916 
donated a fine photographic lens to the observatory, which adds 
materially to its equipment. 

CARNEGIE MILLSAPS LIBRARY. 

Near the close of the session of 1905-1906, Mr Andrew 
Carnegie offered to give $15,000 for a library building if the 
trustees would supply an endowment of equal amount. Major 
Millsaps added to his many contributions by giving the full 
amount of the endowment. 



40 MILL^APS COLLEGJ] 

The foundations of this handsome building unfortunately 
p;ave way so that it became necessary to rebuild the structure, 
and the Carnegie Corporation has generously appropriated 
$50,000.00 for this purpose. The books are catalogued fully 
by the A. L. A. system and are in charge of Mrs. M. B. Clark, 
a trained and experienced librarian. 

From time to time additions have been made from the en- 
downment funds and from the Library fees. 

In addition to the books thus obtained, the library has 
been so fortunate as to secure most of the well selected li- 
braries of the late Dr. C. K. Marshall, John W. Burruss and 
Rev. W. G. Millsaps, the entire library of Colonel W. L. Nu- 
gent, besides many volumes from the libraries of ex-Chan- 
cellor Edward Mayes, Dr. A. F. Watkins and Major R. W. Mill- 
saps. Dr. J. M. Burton, late professor of Romance Languages, 
who died in France in the service of his country on October 
5, 1918, generously left to the College his entire Romance li- 
brary. This has been appropriately labeled and shelved, and 
constitutes a valuable addition to the books on Romance Lan- 
guages. The Martha A. Turner Fund, founded by Mrs. J. R. 
Bingham, of Carrollton, Mississippi, is used for the purchase 
of books in English literature. Through the generosity of 
Hon. W. S. F. Tatum a fine collection of books is being built 
up for the use of the Department of Religious Education. More 
than one hundred volumes have been added by him for each of 
the past three years. 



Mrs. Charles B. Galloway has made a notable addition to 
our collection of valuable books by giving to the College the 
fine theological library of the lamented Bishop Charles B. Gal- 
loway. 



The students also have access to the State Library and the 
Jackson Public Library, which are unusually complete in many 
departments. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 41 

RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION. 

Students will be required to be present at morning worship 
in the College Chapel. In tliis daily service the Faculty and 
students come together to hear the reading of the Bible and to 
engage in singing and prayer. Students must attend religious 
worship at least once on Sunday in one of the churches of Jack- 
son. 

THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 

One of the most potent factors in the College for develop- 
ing the students into a broader life is the Young Men's Chris- 
tian Association. Its policy and aim is to develop the three- 
fold nature of the students — the moral, intellectual, and spirit- 
ual. It is a well known fact that a student who develops him- 
self intellectually, but neglects his spiritual nature, is in no 
sense a complete man. Unless one becomes a well-rounded 
man, he is not fit to fight the battles of life. 

In this connection the Association was organized shortly 
after the College was founded. It has done as much to mould 
character and to hold up a high standard of ideals before the 
students as any other department in connection with the College. 
It has been dominated by the double purpose of leading men to 
accept Christ and to form such associations as will guard them 
against the temptations of college life. The Association has done 
much to strengthen the spiritual life and influence of the Col- 
lege, to promote Christian character and fellowship and progres- 
sive Christian work It trains its members for Christian service 
and leads them to devote their lives to the cause of Christ where 
they can accomplish the most for the extension of the Kingdom 
of God. In order to accomplish this purpose the Association 
holds weekly meetings on Wednesday evenings. These services 
are usually conducted by some of the students, but occasionally 
by some member of the Faculty, or by some prominent minister 
or layman. 

Realizing the importance of a young man's choosing his 
life work while in college, a series of addresses on "Life Work" 



42 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

has been arranged and prominent men of each profession are 
invited to address the Association from time to time on their re- 
spective professions. 

An annual revival is held some time in the year, lasting 
more than a week, which results in leading many yong men to 
Christ each year. These services this year were conducted by 
Rev. Joseph A. Smith, D.D., and resulted in renewing enthus- 
iasm and in giving great stimulus to Association work. 

The Association sends yearly a delegation to the Southern 
Student's Conference at Blue Ridge, North Carolina. Since the 
ten days of the Convention are assiduously devoted to discussing 
Association work and problems, the delegates always return en- 
thusiastic and zealous for doing Christian service. 

The work of the Asociation is carried on by the students; 
each man has his part to do according- to the plan of the organi- 
zation. The President, elected by the members, appoints chair- 
men of nine committees, each composed of three or more men. 
It is the duty of the Publicity Committee to advertise all meet- 
ings, and secure good attendance. The Membership Committee 
meets all new students as they arrive, and gives them any in- 
formation desired concerning College, boarding facilities, etc. 
Afterward this committee calls on each student and urges him 
to become a member of the Association. The Reception Com- 
mittee has charge of College Night, and any other entertain- 
ment that the Association may choose to give during the year. 
The object of College Night is to make the students acquainted 
with one another and to interest the new men in the different 
phases of College life. The Employment Committee assists 
deserving students in getting employment for their spare time. 
The City Mission Committee has charge of work in different 
parts of the city. The Devotional Committee provides leaders, 
and the Music Committee, whose Chairman is the Treasurer of 
the Association, collects the annual dues and raises funds suf- 
ficient for meeting current expenses. 

But most important are the Bible Study and Mission Study 
Committees. Bible study groups are formed at the Dormitory 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 43 

and at the boarding houses. The students engage in daily Bible 
reading and meet for one hour each week, for discussion. The 
Mission Study Committee arranges courses in biographies of 
missionaries in various mission fields and secures leaders for 
the various classes. A student Volunteer Band is organized 
and active in preparation for mission work. Delegates are sent 
each year to the Volunteer Convention and the College is now 
represented in the foreign field by a number of efficient mis- 
sionaries. 

The Y. M. C. A. is back of every phase of College life, and 
it is expected that every student will identify himself with the 
organization. 

THE YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 

The Young Women's Christian Association plays the 
same part in the lives of the young women of the college as is 
played by the Y. M. C. A. in the lives of the men. It exerts a 
profound influence for good on the whole college. 

The Y. W. C. A. has its own "Hut" on the campus, and this 
building is well equipped with conveniences, having its own 
kitchen and other rooms for the girls of the college. Religious 
services are held by the Y. W. C. A. each week, a period being 
set apart in the college programe of exercises for that purpose. 
The Association sends each year a delegate to Montreat, and 
the prize for the best song of the Y. W. C. A. was taken last 
year by a Millsaps delegate. The girls of the college have in 
the Y. W. C. A. all the advantages offered by that organization 
in the best colleges for women. 

The Freshman Commission constitutes those who are in 
training for position as future officers of the Association. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

Two large halls have been provided for the Literary Socie- 
ties organized for the purpose of improvement in debate, dec- 
lamation, composition, and acquaintance with the methods of 



44 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

deliberative bodies. These societies are conducted by the stu- 
dents under constitutions and by-laws of their own framing. 
They are named respectively, the Galloway and the Lamar So- 
cieties, and contribute greatly to the improvement of their mem- 
bers. 

Representatives chosen from the societies engage in inter- 
collegiate debate with teams from the other colleges of the 
state and also other institutions. In recent years there have 
been debates with Emory University, Birmingham Southern 
College, Vanderbilt University, Centenary College, and others. 

LITERARY CLUBS AND STUDENT PUBLICATIONS. 

There has been a live interest in literary composition mani- 
fested both in the advanced courses in composition in the Eng- 
lish Department and in the organization of two national liter- 
ary fraternities, the Kit Kat Club and Chi Delta Phi. There 
are also two literary publications which have an excellent stand- 
ing among the student publications of the South, viz., the Pur- 
ple and White, the campus weekly, and the college annual, 
the Bobashela. During the present year a volume entitled 
"Millsaps Verse" has been published by the students and has 
received high commendation. 

MUSICAL ORGANIZATIONS 

For a number of years there have been two excellent glee 
clubs, the men's glee club under the direction of Dr. A. P. Ham- 
ilton, and the women's glee club under the direction of Dr. B. 
E. Mitchell. In addition to these a choral organization consist- 
ing of the two clubs combined was conducted by Professor J. 
T. Hooker. During the present year an excellent band has 
been organized, the student body raising some $1200.00 for in- 
struments and equipment, and under the leadership of Mr. 
Roger Philip it has made rapid progres. 

Several other voluntary organizations, such as the Science 
Club, give expresion to collateral scholary interests outside the 
regular curriculum. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 45 

ATHLETICS. 

Mlllsaps College is a member of the Southern Intercolle- 
giate Athletic Association, and takes part in all intercollegiate 
games. Games and sports of all kinds are under the special 
direction of the General Athletic Association, a student organi- 
zation, whose object is to promote this class of physical exer- 
cise. The faculty exercises a general advisory control, en- 
deavoring to forsee and avert dangerous tendencies or excess in 
physical exercises while giving to the student as far as possible, 
entire liberty of management; a strict limit is placed upon the 
character of the intercollegiate games and the number played 
away from the College. 

The Athletic Director has supervision of all intercollegiate 
teams and conducts mass games and interclass leagues that 
enlist a large percentage of the students in some form of active 
participation in athletics. For those who report regularly two 
hours a week for exercise, under the instruction of the Athletic 
Director, a scholastic credit of one session-hour is granted, 

BOARDING FACILITIES. 

Students of Millsaps College, as a rule, arrange for their 
living in one of two ways: 

1. There are eight small cottages, in which students can 
room at i-educed cost. These cottages are provided with the 
same furniture provided for dormitory rooms. The cottages 
are admirably situated on the eastern side of the campus. The 
rooms are sufficiently large to accommodate two students each. 
The room rental per student in the cottages is $25.00 for the 
session and must be paid as follows: $12.50 on entrance, and 
$12.50 on Feburary 1st. The boys in these cottages may take 
their meals in the college dormitory. Lights amount to very 
little. Students wishing to engage a room in one of the cot- 
tages should write Mr. V. B. Hathorn, at the College. 

2. In the dormitories the expense will be approximately 
$23.00 or $24.00 per month including room, light, steam heat. 



AG MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

board, matron's services, and hospital facilities. The dining- 
room is conducted on the cooperative plan. During 1924-1925 
the cost amounted to approximately $19.00 per month. Students 
may room in the cottages and take their meals at the college 
dormitory. There are Christian homes vi^here students may 
get rooms without board. In such cases the students may get 
meals at the college dormitory or at private homes. 

THE DORMITORIES. 

Founder's Hall is a three story structure, beautifully lo- 
cated on the east campus facing State Street. At the south 
end of the campus and overlooking the cty with the beautiful 
dome of the New Capitol, in the foreground are Burton Hall 
and Galloway Hall. These handsome buildings with their 
columned porticoes are connected by a colonnade. 

The great dining room is unusually fine, and is separated 
from the large kitchens by a commodious serving room. A 
feature which will be greatly appreciated by the students is a 
large common room where the boys may gather for a social 
hour. 

Millsaps now is able to offer dormitories equal in all their 
appointments to the best to be found in any institution in this 
section. Each student should bring with him four sheets for a 
single bed, blankets, or quilt, a pillow with cases, and six tow- 
els. 

No change of rooms will be allowed except by permission 
of the President. 

Early reservation should be made if a student wishes to be 
assui-ed of a room. A deposit of $5.00 must accompany a re- 
quest for a reservation. Students entering college for the first 
time are entitled to reserve a room upon payment of the Regis- 
tration fee of $15.00. 

MEMORIAL COTTAGES. 

The friends of the late Rev. John A. Ellis, of the Mississip- 
pi Conference, and the Rev. J. H. Brooks, of North Mississippi 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 47 

Conference, have built two cottages for the accommodation of 
students. These homes are named, respectively, the John A. 
Ellis and J. H. Brooks Cottage. 

MATRICULATION. 

The various departments are under the direction of profes- 
sors who are responsible for the systems and methods pursued. 

The session begins on the fourth Wednesday of September 
and continues with recess of about ten days at Christmas, and a 
recess of three days at the end of the second term, until the first 
Tuesday in June. The first two days of the session are given 
to registration, and all students, both old and new, are required 
during that time to place their names upon the books of the Col- 
lege and the rolls of their respective classes. Lecture courses 
begin Friday, and absences will be recorded against any student 
not present from the opennig lecture of each course. 

EXAMINATIONS. 

The examinations in each class are held in writing. Oral 
examinations are held in some departments, but they are auxil- 
iary to the written examinations, which in conjunction with 
the class standing as determined by the daily work, of the stu- 
dent, are the main tests of the student's proficiency. 

REPORTS. 

Reports are sent at the close of each six weeks to the par- 
ent or guardian of each student. These reports give the num- 
ber of excused and unexcused absences from lectures, and in- 
dicate, as nearly as practicable, the nature of the progress made 
by him in his work at the College. 

HONOR SYSTEM. 

Not the least of the educational influences of the College 
is the honor system. According to this system the student is 
not watched by the members of the Faculty during examina- 



48 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

tions, but is required to pledge his honor that he has neither re- 
ceived nor given any aid during the period of examination. If a 
student is accused of cheating, he is given a full and fair trial by 
the Honor Council, which is composed of seven students select- 
ed by the students. Experience has shown that under this sys- 
tem not only has cheating been lessened, but that a spirit of 
honor and truth has been fostered which tends to include not 
only the examination tests, but all relations between student 
and professor. 

REGISTRATION OF NEW STUDENTS. 

Applicants seeking admission to the College for the first 
time should present themselves to the Registrar of the College 
at his office in the main building at some time during the first 
two days of the session. In each instance a certificate of good 
moral character must be presented, signed by the proper oificial 
of the institution attended during the previous session, or by 
some person of known standing. Each candidate who satisfies 
these requirements and those for admission by certificate or 
examination will be furnished with a card containing the cours- 
es offered, from which he may select those which he proposes 
to pursue during the session. The card must then be carried 
to the Treasurer, who will, after the College fees have been 
paid to him, sign the card. On payment of these fees the ap- 
plicant will be admitted to classes. 

DELAYED REGISTRATION. 

Students are not permitted to delay their registration 
through carelessness or for inadequate reasons. Any student, 
new or old, who fails to present himself for registration during 
the first two days of the session will be admitted to registra- 
tion only upon the consent of the President, and will be requir- 
ed to pay a special fee of $3.00. 

RESIDENCE, ATTENDANCE AND GRADES. 

The Academic year begins on the morning of the fourth 
Wednesday of September and continues for thirty-six weeks. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 49 

Thanksgiving Day is a holiday, and there is a Christmas re- 
cess beginning on the evening of the seventeenth of December 
and continuing about ten days, and a Spring recess of three 
days. 

Attendance is required of each student throughout the en- 
tire session, with the exception of the days above indicated, un- 
less he has received permission to be temporarily absent or to 
M^ithdraw^ before its close. Leave of absence is granted by the 
Faculty or President for sufficient reasons, and must in every 
case be obtained in advance. While in residence each student 
is required to attend regularly all lectures and other prescribed 
exercises and all examinations in the courses which he pursues, 
(unless excused for cause), and in every way to conform to the 
regulations of the College. 

Absence from the College is permitted only upon the leave 
of the President, obtained in every case in advance. But leave 
of absence for purposes of accompanying the athletic teams, 
debating teams and all other recognized clubs will not be grant- 
ed except to officers and members of the organization. 

Absence of athletic teams and other student organizations 
is provided for by Faculty regulations. 

Absence from any class is not excused except for sick- 
ness or like providential cause. But absences, whether ex- 
cused or not, from one-fourth or more of the recitation periods 
in any term will result in proportionate decrease of credits al- 
lowed. 

Absence from examinations will not be excused except 
for sickness on day of examination, attested by a physician's 
certificate, or other cause which the Faculty by special order 
may approve. An unexcused absence or presentation of an 
unpledged paper is counted as a total failure in the examina- 
tion in which it occurs. A student whose absence from exam- 
ination is excused is admitted to the special examinations or- 
dered by the Faculty. 



50 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Change of Classes. 

Students cannot change classes or drop classes or take 
up new classes except by tlie consent of the Faculty. 

The grade of the student in any class, either for a term 
or for the session is determined by the combined class stand- 
ing and the result of examination. In case the examination 
grade falls below 60 per cent, the class standing is not avei 
aged. 

Class standing in any course is determined by the regular 
ity of attendance of the student upon lectures (and laboratory 
or other similar exercises where included) in the course in 
question and by the faithful performance of his work as indi- 
cated by the answers when questioned, by written exercises, 
note books, the faithful performance of laboratory (or other 
similar) work, etc. Students are regarded by the faculty as 
under the law of honor in matters affecting class standing or 
in examinations. The grade for passing in any course is 70 
per cent. For quality requirements see page 63. 

Re-examination. 

A student who attains in any course an examination grade 
for the term not below 50 per cent, and whose average is be- 
low 70 per cent, is admitted by the Faculty to a special ex- 
amination at a time set by the faculty. 

A student whose examination grade is below 50 per cent 
may earn a special examination by passing the work of the 
succeeding term. 

Withdrawals. 

Voluntary withdrawals from the College require the writ- 
ten consent of the Faculty or President. 

Enforced withdrawals is inflicted by the Faculty for habi- 
tual delinquency in class, habitual idleness or any other fault 
which prevents the student from fulfilling the purpose for 
which he should have come to the College. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 51 

The college reserves the right to cancel the registration of 
any student at any time. In such a case, the pro rata portion 
of board, room rent, and tuition will be returned. 

CONDUCT. 

The rules of the College require from every student de- 
corous, sober and upright conduct as long as he remains a mem- 
ber of the College, M^hether he be within its precincts or not. 

They require from the student regular and diligent application 
to his studies, and regular attendance upon chapel and Sunday 
services at one of the churches. 

Drunkenness, gambling and dissoluteness are strictly for- 
bidden, and any student found guilty of them is punished by 
suspension or expulsion. 

Firearms. 

The keeping of firearms by the students is strictly for- 
bidden. 

Visiting the City at Night. 

Students who are delinciuent in their studies are forbid- 
den to visit the town, or other place away from College, at 
night, without permission from the President. 

Delinquency. 

Reports are made each two weeks of all those failing dur- 
ing the preceding two weeks in each subject. The names of 
those delinquent are posted and notice is sent to the parent or 
guardian. 

Those delinquent in two or more subjects are required to 
report to study hall from 7:30 to 9:30 in the evening of the 
following two weeks. 



52 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Those students who do not pass in as many as two sub- 
jects during any term shall be dismissed from College. 

Demerit System. 

1. The demerit system is used. Demerits are incurred by un- 
excused absence from class, chapel, and church, and for 

other violations of the college regulations, such as hazing 
and other offences. 

2. When a student has received an aggregate of thirty-five 
demerits, Tie is called before the Faculty and warned. A 
notice of the same will be sent to his parents or guardian. 

3. When the aggregate of demerits reaches sixty-five, he re- 
ceives a second warning, and a second notice is sent to his 
parent or guardian 

4. When the aggregate of demerits reaches one hundred, he 
is dismissed from the College. 

EXPENSES. 

Parents desiring to settle all College bills, such as board, 
etc., through the Treasurer may do so by simply sending check 
to Mr. V. B. Hathorn, Treasurer, and specifying what the en- 
closure is intended to cover. 

FEES, TUITION, AND BOARD. 
FEES. 

No student will be admitted into any department of the 
College except upon presentation to the professor of the de- 
partment of the Treasurer's receipt for all entrance and tuit- 
ion fees. In no case are entrance or laboratory fees returned. 

TUITION. 

Tuition fees will be charged by the year or half-year and 
must be paid not later than the second week of each period. 
No tuition fee will be returned unless a student is disqualified 
for work by severe illness for more than two months. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 53 

BOARD. 

Board is payable by the scholastic month (28 days) strict- 
ly in advance. When a student has paid his board a meal tick- 
et will be issued to him by the Treasurer, which will be good 
until the next payment falls due. Payments lor board will 
not be returned except for absence of not less than two weeks. 
Charges for board do not include the Christmas holidays, dur- 
ing which period meals will not be served in the dining hall. 

Students will not be admitted to the dining hall without 
meal tickets after the Monday following the opening of the 
session. 

No student shall be considered by the faculty as an appli-

M.A. and M.S. Degrees. 

The degrees of M.A. and M.S. may be conferred upon grad- 
uates who hold the B.A. or B.S. degree from Millsaps College, 
or from some other institution of equal rank. For the attain- 
ment of either degree one year of residence at Millsaps College 
is required after the attainment of the Bachelor's degree, and 
also satisfactory completion of advanced work to the amount 
of fifteen hours. This work must be taken in not more than 
three different subjects; a major subject, in which a minimum 
of six hours credit must be earned; and one or two minor sub- 
jects to the amount of six hours credit. 

All the work of the major subject must be of an advanced 
character, to which undergraduates are not admitted. The minor 
subject or subjects may be pursued in senior college courses. 
No grade less than 80% shall be credited towards the require- 
ments for the Master's degree in any subject. In addition to 
the twelve hours required as above stated, a thesis dealing 
with some phase of the major subject must be submitted by the 
candidate six weeks before his graduation, and approved by a 
committee of the Faculty. In time requirements this shall be 
considered equivalent to three hours work. 

A full outline of the required and the elective studies of- 
fered for the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of 
Science is given in the pages following this announcement. 

Sixty-four year-hours are required for graduation both for 
the B.A. and B.S. degrees. Specific courses are prescribed in 
the Freshman and the Sophomore classes, including alternative 
courses offered in ancient and modern languages. Courses in 
the Junior and Senior classes are partially prescribed and par- 
tially elective, from ten to thirteen hours of electives being 
offered in those classes. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 63 

The normal course is 16 hours for each year. Not fewer 
than 12 hours nor more than 19 hours may be taken in a year, 
unless by expi'ess permission of the President and Faculty. 

A student who makes a grade of 70% in a subject will be 
advanced in that subject, but a total of 6 grade points is re- 
quisite for advancement from one class to the next higher class, 
and for graduation a total of 27 grade points is required. The 
completion of any college course with a grade of 80% for the 
year shall entitle a student to one grade point for each year- 
hour, and the completion of a course with a grade of 90% for 
the year shall entitle a student to two grade points for each 
year-hour. 

HONORS. 

A student who has earned 64 grade points during his 
course shall be graduated with "honors"; one who has earned 
128 grade points shall be graduated with "high honors."

1. DEPARTMENT OF ANCIENT LANGUAGES. 

PROFESSOR HAMILTON 

PROFESSOR KEY. 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR HUDDLESTON 

It is believed that the mastery of these highly inflected 
languages will effect the purposes aimed at in education in the 
following ways: 

(a) Constant drill in the processes of correlation, comparison, 
discrimination and classification of the phenomena of lan- 
guage is required, both in the study of inflection and syn- 
tax and in translation. This drill affords a most rigorous 
exercise in correct scientific method and produces habits 
and reflexes of accuracy, efficiency and system. 

(b) A first hand acquaintance with the language and modes 
of expression of the ancients and with the evolution of 
literary forms lay open a field of knowledge that is es- 
sential to a full understanding of modern life and litera- 
ture. 

(c) Intimate contact with the very words which express the 
best ideals and aspirations of those great spirits v/hose 
influence has been most abiding and formative in our 
world should shape the character to fine and worthy pur- 
poses. 

LATIN. 

Course A. Cicero and Ovid. Selections from Cicero's Ora- 
tions and Ovid's Metamorphoses. Comprehensive reviews of 
forms and syntax. This course is a prerequisite to Latin I if 
only two units in Latin are offered. When so taken it gives 
three hours elective credit.

tion of the requirements for teacher's license. Two hours, 

GREEK. 

Course A. Thorough mastery of the forms and syntax. Pharr, 
Greek Homeric Greek, Gospel of Mark. This course which 
is given under the supervision of the head of the depart- 
ment may be counted as elective. Or it may be used to

work which each student must perform in the laboratory. The 
Lnboratories are kept well equipped with apparatus necessary 
to the correct appreciation oi' the science. Each student has 
liis own desk and apparatus, and is closely supervised, so that 
he may not only gain a true idea of the substance under in- 
spection but also train his hands to be careful to the smallest 
detail, and the eye observant of the slightest phenomenon, and 
habits of neatness, skill and economy. Each student will be 
expected to keep accurate notes. In all courses attention will 
be given to chemical calculations, and the use of reference 
books and periodicals will be encouraged. 

Entrance credits for at least one unit in Natural Science is 
required for admission to this department, and applicants should 
have completed an elementary course in Chemistry. 

1. Inorganic Chemistry. 

(a) The first term v/ill be devoted to a careful study of funda- 
mental principles and laws, the occurrence, properties, 
preparation and uses of a number of the common elements 
and compounds, and chemical calculations. 

(b) During the second term the study of non-metals will be 
completed and a few weeks devoted to the alkali and al- 
kali-earth metals. Special attention will be given to val- 
ence and the ionization theory. 

(c) The work of the third term will include a study of metals 
with special reference to commercial uses and to qualita- 
tive analysis, and an elementary course in Organic Chem- 
istry. 

This course is designed to give the student a thorough 
working knowledge of general chemistry, and is a pre- 
scribed study of the Sophomore year for all degrees, and 
is a prerequisite to either of the other courses in chem- 
istry.

Certain Freshmen will be admitted to courses in 2 or 3 
although they are not advised to begin their election of courses 
in Education before the Sophomore year. 

1. (a) Principles of Education. 

This course is planned as an introduction to the study of 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 77 

education. In order to orient the student and prospective 
teacher and prevent his losing his way in the shifting winds 
of educational doctrines, tlie large objective of education is 
clearly revealed to him. This objective is that of induct- 
ing the child into the life of society and training him in the 
use of the instrumentalities of civilization. The biological and 
psychological foundations upon which education is based are 
studied during the first term. Three hours, first term. 

(b) Principles of Education. 

This is a continuation of the preceding course and consists 
of a study of the sociological foundation of education and the 
principles which govern the conduct of the various branches 
of the social institution called the school. Prerequisite, 1 (a). 
Three hours second term. 

(c) An Introduction to Teaching, 

This course is intended to familiarize the student with 
modern practice in class and school-room management and 
instruction. Three hours, third term. 

2. (a) General Psychology. 

This course provides a general view of the field and nature 
of psychology together with a careful survey of the native traits 
and tendencies of human beings. These mental and motor 
traits are presented as the foundation upon which human be- 
havior is built through the process of learning. Three hours, 
first term. 

(b) Psychology. 

The second term is devoted to the study of acquired traits 
and deals with the study of perception, memory, habit, motor 
learning and learning by association. 

The laws as developed are applied to actual school situa- 
tions. Pre-requisite 2 (a.) Second term, three hours. 



78 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

(c) Educational Psychology, 

This is a practical course wliich grows out of the study 
of individual differences and the laws of learning as set forth in 
the preceding term. It consists of a study of the principles upon 
which tests of mental ability have been developed and of the 
use of the same in group tests. A parallel study is made of 
the making and use of achievement tests. This is accompan- 
ied by a study of statistical methods sufficiently extensive 
to give a general understanding of the meaning, computation 
and use of the following: Central tendencies — mean, median 
and crude mode; measures of variability — quartile, average de- 
viation and standard deviation; measure of reliability — probable 
error; measure of relationship — coefficient or correlation. Pre- 
requisite, 2 and 3. Three hours. Third term. Also given 
in Summer term. 

(d) Psychology of Junior High School Pupils. 

This is a study of the pupil just entering upon the period 
of adolescence. The implications, from psychology, toward a 
reorganization of school practice which has resulted in the es- 
tablishment of the Junior High School are stressed in the 
course. Three hours. Summer term. 

(e) Educational Psychology. 

This is a study of the laws of learning, of individual dif- 
ferences and the implications of these differences in school prac- 
tice; of mental and physical fatigue and its relation to sched- 
ule making, etc. Every effort is made to apply the principles 
learned to actual school situations. Three hours, Summer 
term. 

(f) Elementary Statistics. 

This course is intended for those who, in the classes in 
Psychology, find a need for further study in this important 
field. Various methods of finding correlations, together with 
predictive formulas to be used in prognosis, are included. The 
course will be given in place of 2. (c) during the summer if 
the demand for it is sufficient. Three hours, Summer term. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 79

This study will follow the development of education in the 
United States up to the present, bringing out the very rapid 
development of secondary education during the last two de- 
cades. Particular attention will be given to the development 
of education in the Southern States insofar as that differs from 
the general evolution in the United States. Three hours, third 
term. 

4. (a) Public School Administration. 

This is a survey of the evolution of modern school admin- 
istration in city, county and state. Since most progress has 
been made originally in city school administration and this 
progress has been adapted later to county and state service, the 
chief emphasis is placed upon city administration. 

Application is constantly made to the conditions actually 
existing in Mississippi. Three hours, first term. 

(b) Principles of Secondary Education. 

The aims and functions of secondary education; the nature 
of the high school population; the articulation of the high 



80 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

school with the elementary school and the college; application of 
principles to the situation in Mississippi. Thi'ee hours, second 
term. 

(c) The Teaching of High School Subjects. 

This is a continuation of the preceding course dealing chief- 
ly with the values of subjects in the secondary school curri- 
culum together with methods of teaching the various subjects. 

Each student is expected to make a special study and re- 
port on the particular subject which he desires to consider his 
major teaching subject. Three hours, third term. 

(d) The Junior High School. 

This is a study of the new movement in American educa- 
tion, which resulted from the study of the pressing needs of 
pupils as well as the needs of society. It will include the 
philosophy underlying the reorganization of secondary educa- 
tion as well as the organization and course of studies of the 
Junior High School. Three hours. Summer term. 

(e) The Teaching of Citizenship.

COLLEGE EXTENSION. 

PROFESSOR WALKER, Director, 

It is the purpose of the Extension Department as far as 
possible to make the resources of the college available for peo- 
ple in their homes. Many who aspire to self-culture have not 
the means or the inclination to come to college for it. To 
such the Extension Department holds out a helping hand. 

The college has a valuable equipment of books, buildings, 
and trained instructors. It is the privilege of the people to call 
for such service as the college can render; it is the duty and 
privilege of the college to devise ways and means for placing its 
service at the disposal of the people. 

AID TO METHODIST MINISTERS. 

Library Extension Service. — One of the most effective ways 
in which we are serving the ministers of Mississippi is in 
placing the books of our library subject to their call. We not 
only do this free of charge but we pay postage one way on any 
book that may be ordered from us. Books may be kept out 
for the period of one month. 

AID TO HIGH SCHOOL PUPILS AND TEACHERS. 

Debates and Public Speaking. — The Extension Department 
provides assistance for high school pupils in the selection of 
speeches and in the preparation of debates. 

Lectures and Commencement Orators. — Members of the Col- 
lege faculty are available for lectures and public speeches on 
commencement anniversaries, and other public occasions. 

Judges and Referees for High School Contests. — -On short 
notice the Extension Department can provide properly quali- 
fied judges and referees for high school contests, athletic and 
literary.

HISTORY. 

PROFESSOR LIN. 

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR MOORE. 

MR. BEACHAM. 

In the courses in History two things will be kept in view. 
Students will be required to acquaint themselves with the sig- 
nificant facts in the development of the nations studied, and 
to learn why these facts are considered significant. As far as 
possible, the causal connection between historical events will be 
indicated, and emphasis will be laid on the idea that history is 
a record of the continuous development of the human race, 
whose growing self-consciousness manifests itself in the pro- 
gressive organization of its moral and intellectual ideals into 
laws and customs. 

In order to understand each people or nation studied, ac- 
count will be taken of its literature, its racial composition, its 
religious and social institutions, its economic conditions, and 
the organization of its government.

matter of a proper curriculum for religious education depart- 
ments in the colleges of the church. The aim is to train avoca- 
tional workers in this field as well as to offer prevocational 
courses. The program now being formulated by the Church 
proposes to make heavy demands upon the trained services of 
the laity. For this reason the fact is emphasized that these 
courses are not for ministerial students only. 

On completion of twelve session hours offered in this de- 
partment, the General Sunday School Board of the M. E. Church 
South, through its Department of Teacher Training in co-op- 
eration with the faculty of the college will award a certificate 
in Religious Education. Of the courses listed below, Bible 1 
and Religious Education la, lb, Ic, 2a, 2c, 3b, 5b, compose 
ten session hours counted as required work on the certificate 
in Religious Education.

work just listed: Religious Education 2b for Religious Educa- 
tion 2a; History of Education for Religious Education 6b. 

The two remaining session hours counting toward the cer- 
tificate in Religious Education may be taken from the follow- 
ing courses: Religious Education 5c, 6a, 6b, 6c.

GENERAL STATEMENT. 

The Summer School of Millsaps College for 1926 will open 
on June 8th, and will continue for ten weeks. 

The Summer School will be conducted for teachers who de- 
sire work in certain High School and College subjects and for 
College students. High School students who have a little work 
to make up for entrance will find opportunity here to do so. 
One or two units may be made. Teachers may secure renewal 
of license by attendance for six weeks. 

In opening its doors to the teachers of the State, Millsaps 
College feels that it is serving a long felt need in that some 
provision should be made at the Capitol of the State for teach- 
ers to spend a few weeks during their vacation and at the same 
time take such work as they may find in the list of courses. 

All the advantages of the other summer schools will be af- 
forded in the way of renewal and extension of license provided 
by the State Department of Education. 

College graduates who lack the required number of hours 
in Education will find, here, an opportunity to make up some 
of those hours. Students with two years of college training 
may, with six hours of Education, be granted a State License 
vdthout exam.ination by the State Board of Examiners. 

The amount of work that a student may take will be limit- 
ed to two subjects with a total credit of six hours.
